Well, that's a separate issue, so should have its own feature request. The main difficulty is that Python has no notion of a 'pure imaginary' type: one would have to implement such a type to get this behaviour.
C99 defines the _Imaginary types for exactly this reason. Unfortunately, that part of the specification is optional, and almost no-one has implemented it. (Sun might be an exception.)
